not say to say Liddell didnt have decent ground game its just not what hes known for ya know? thats what im sayin
Wolf is huge, i have no problem with his training style because he looks freaking awesome... Buuuut, if he wants to make the improvements that kai, phil, and dexter are making... he needs to go to metroflex and get a crashcourse in hardcore and then he needs to go to Armbrust Gym for a crashcourse in squats. Him saying " full squats" is like when Gustavo Badell was doing curls and saying " ALL NATURAL!!"
I don't care if he doesn't fix up his weakpoints, although it would be a tragic waste, I don't particularly want him to end up like JoJ (as I think he looks crap too), but I do think that squatting like a rookie deserves all the vitriol and admonishments it can get. He is meant to be a pro and showing us how it is done. This is especially so as the video label is "Full Squats" and that is not what he was doing.
Having said that I still remain a fan of the guy, and if offered the chance to train with him I would happily accept and tell him to his face that he should squat better ("should" because it would be good for his development and be better for the joints long term).
Just saw the vid, those squats were horrible to say the least...and its bullshit that he cant squat right cuz he is "tall". Im almost 6'2" and do full squats and i deadlift, so its all bullshit, lazy fuck who is wasting genetics...imagine a guy like branch warren or other real hard working pro's with those genetics!
with squats like that i hope he doesnt get top 6. his hams and glutes are going to be off again. woooooooooooo. Tell me how this sort of training is good for the sport? for example, A gym goer looking for inspiration googles squat video sees some big bastard(wolf) doing quarter squats with pussy weight. He immediately concludes his assumption that all bodybuilders are is drugs and pussies. He disses bodybuilding to 10+ friends who then diss bodybuilding to 5+friends all because wolf squatted worse then duality.
I'm as tall as Wolf, 5'11", and I can easily go below parallel, so that that "can't do full squat" talk is bs.
exactly, being 180 cm (which is just average height btw, maybe not in bbing but in the rest of society) is not an excuse for not squatting properly.
oh, and whats this shit about wolf doing it to avoid injuries?! how does squatting like he does help prevent injury? if anything it puts tremendous extra stress on his knees.
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
the guy has had a recent hernia, and is about 2weeks out of the O? I just don't see the big deal about wolf being better safe than sorry
^^ Ronnie isn't 5'11".
But you can keep making excuses for the guy.
